Xwayland killed by SIGABRT - xorg-x11-server quit unexpectedly


Every time I plug in an external storage device (HDD or flashdrive) via an USB port (tested both with 2.0 and 3.0) Xwayland crashes and the user session is terminated. When logging in again the device is recognised and accessible, but when unmounted the user session terminated again. I tested it also on X11. There the Xorg server restarted without killing the user session when plugging in a storage device, but when unmounting it again the user session was terminated.

I tried reporting the bug with ABRT, but the backtrace was unusable. Still, I have it saved, if needed.

This issue occurred with GNOME 3.26.2 on Fedora 27 x64, on a laptop with 7.7Gb RAM, Intel® Pentium(R) CPU N3530 @ 2.16GHz × 4 processor and Intel® Bay Trail Graphics.

Please respond if you know how to solve this, or if I can report the bug manually.

I think ABRT is junk, and has been since the start, but that opinion may be worth less than nothing. Perhaps start here. Bugs I have opened have been responded to promptly.

FWIW, I regularly get crashes in wayland after resume - only started happening recently. Haven't bothered investigating.

I reported the bug in GNOME's bugzilla. It seemed more appropriate. If needed I'll also report it to Red Hat's.

You can see it here.

A developer from Gnome's bugzilla proposed to upgrade gjs to 1.50.4 (still in the testing phase). I did that and the issue was solved, nor have I encountered any other issues so far. You can download gjs 1.50.4 from here; but, if you don't want to mess with testing, just be patient for a small time (11 days, according to bodhi), I'm sure that soon enough gjs 1.50.4 will be part of the stable release.
